Hi abapers:

I have a problem when creating sales orders with a contact as a partner.

Filling the internal table of Partners, I assign CP (Contact) and Contact number which is comming from table KNVK.

When calling the bapi, the sales order is created with the contact but not the Contact assigned by me. At the end, the contact is taken, by the bapi, from the sold-to. In case of the sold-to doesn't have any contact created, no contact partner is created.

Of course, the contact number assigned via program and the contact number of sold-to are differents.

I don't know why SAP decides to take the contact from sold-to instead of taking the data provied by the program.

Please, i need you help.

Thanks in advance

Hello Ernesto

I called the BAPI (Login language = EN) using partner AP <customer no> and it worked.

I assume you have to set IMPORTING parameter CONVERT = 'X' in order to ensure that the BAPI interprets the language-dependent partner role correctly.

Documentation of this parameter CONVERT:

 Short Text
     Conversion of Partner Function + Order Type
     In previous SAP Releases, you had to specify the German abbreviation for
     the order type and partner functions. This parameter now checks whether
     your Customizing has been configured so that you can enter the
     abbreviation in your own language and it is then converted into the
     German key.
 Value range
     o   Space = Not converted
     o     X   = Converted
